the early years of her life with john quincy, they attend numerous types of churches, especially whoever the rotating preacher was in the capital during the secretary of state and presidency years could be presbyterian or unitarian. an ends up very much episcopal thinker, high church and is very, in her later years, she spends a lot of time reminiscing and reflecting on the role of religion and it's very much an important piece for her. >> next up is nick in prince frederick, maryland, hi, nick. >> first of all, thank you for this great program. i'm glad you are part of it. we have links to louisa catherine here. her uncle was one of maryland's first governors. the most we have is what of our town centers, we have a plaque. and a book where you get an impression of louisa catherine that she is very involved in the politics of washington. you don't get the sense of whether it is just a surface or whether her words are contributing to the compromises that are made during that time. would you mind commenting on those two things? >> that is louisa catherine's birth family. in marylan
, just hours before governor john hickenlooper signed new gun control legislation. we'll be taking all of that in a few minutes. >>> plus, something special tonight. we conduct an informal account of u.s. senators asking whether or not they would have supported dianne feinstein's proposed ban on assault weapons. the numbers are not official and in some cases the answer wasn't quite as simple as a yes or no but we will give you those results in a few moments. i now want to turn to my panel of police chiefs in newtown, and the surrounding area, chief michael kehe, chief douglas fuchs, chief joseph gaudett, chief montgomery of brookfield, patrick ridenhour of stratford. first i'll read the names of the 35 senators who so far have told us that they oppose senator feinstein's assault weapons bill. it's important to know who they are. senators alexander, ayotte, baucus, begich, boozman, burr, coburn, cochran, crapo, cruz, donnelly, enzi, flake, graham, grassley, hatch, heitkamp, hoeven, inhofe, isakson, johanns, johnson, king, lee, manchin, lee, mccain, risch, roberts, rubio, shelby, wicker.
's schedule, though, as you just saw. he has arrived in ramallah in the west bank. john king is helping cover this trip. he is in jerusalem right now. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, john. this is a very important visit by the president. you heard when he was in israel yesterday, president netanyahu saying sure, i'll go back to the bargaining table. he urged the palestinians to come back with no preconditions. one of the preconditions of the palestinians was that mr. netanyahu stop construction in the west bank. interesting moment. those in israel believe president netanyahu has to say that but that he doesn't see an opportunity for peace. president abbas has said he wants to come back to the bargaining table but can he deliver the palestinians? those rockets fired just this morning from the palestinian territory of gaza, controlled by hamas, of course. a reminder that mr. abbas speaks for the palestinian authority in the west bank but does not necessarily speak for the palestinians in gaza. president obama trying to navigate a very difficult challenge. he would like to get the
from john king in jerusalem and ivan watson in jordan. >> let's start with those accusations of chemical warfare in syria yet to be verified. what does that mean for the u.s. involvement in this conflict? ivan watson, you're following the story from nearby amman. tell us what you're hearing about even what happened? >> conflicting reports and most of the information is coming from the syrian government which first made the accusation on tuesday accusing rebels of carrying out some kind of chemical weapons attack in a government-controlled town to the west of aleppo that killed at least 25 people and wounded scores of people. the rebels were very quick to deny that charge. and in turn accuse the government of misfiring one of its own chemical weapons at that town. so we really don't know one way or the other some chemical weapons experts, michael, have said from the evidence we've seen on syrian state tv, it's not enough to really conclusively make the case that any chemical weapons were used. take a listen to what the u.s. ambassador to syria, robert ford, said to cnn. he say
between the israelis and palestinians can be restarted. with the new secretary of state john kerry along on this trip, some in the administration hope a new spirit of collaboration can be established. there's also a new coalition government in israel, one that remains fractured when it comes to the establishment of a palestinian state. it is no secret that prime minister benjamin netanyahu and president barack obama have not always seen eye-to-eye on the best road to peace and that's just the beginning for president obama on this historic trip. he has to deal with nuclear threats from iran and provide a road map for how far the united states will go in defense of israel. we will get insights to all of these challenges for president obama with the former ambassador to israel, martin indyk who joins us from washington where he is the vice president and director for foreign policy at the brookings institution. ambassador indyk, good to have you back on the program, sir. >> thanks, tavis, good to be with you. tavis: i gues
that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the great crisis we need to fear. those that have said have been wrong, two years ago was supposed to be then. at least they're backing off it being so soon. that's eroding the underlying nature of the argument. >> does this help explain why they're doing nothing, the debt isn't a big deal? >> they a sequester, what more do they need. >> ezra klein gets the last word. >>> "the ed show" is next. >>> good evening, americans, welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson. elizabeth warren takes a stand for working class americans. michele bachmann has seen the light on infrastructure and might be getting off the appalachain trail and heading back to washington and a southern pastor makes a radical stand for justice. but tonight, we start with the tenth anniversary of the ed show. let's get to work. the shock and awe campaign was launched aga
said the war was illegal. nelson mandela called it a threat to peace. pope john paul ii said the war would not solve problems of man. jesse jackson called on peaceful people everywhere to march until the war was over. let us admire and respect the position of a former president, as well as the words from a future president, it was illinois state senator barack obama who said in 2002, i don't oppose all wars. what i am opposed to is a dumb war. this is a war that cost the lives of anywhere from 110,000 to 1 million civilians. today is not a day to cheer for success. but it is a day to remember those who fought hard to avoid the war's tragic consequences. get your cell phones out. >> michael moore was booed off the stage for denouncing the invasion of iraq. so much for these bleeding heart liberals in hollywood. let us not forget the response from around the globe. u.n. secretary annan said the war was illegal. nelson mandela called it a threat to peace. pope john paul ii said the war would not solve problems of man. jesse jackson called on peaceful people everywhere to march until the
republican speaker john boehner also put out a statement today on medicare. on obama care, sorry. he said, "far from bending the cost curve, obama care's projected price tag has nearly doubled. health insurance premiums have spiked and are expected to climb even further when the law takes full effect next year. the millions of jobs democrats promised are nowhere to be found and businesses, large and small, are already pointing to the impact of obama care as the reason for planned layoffs and a reluctance to hire more staff." the republican-controlled house passed the budget this week that repeals and defunds obama care, but in the senate, a measure to repeal obama care was voted down. yuma? >> molly, thank you very much. >>> overseas now, and growing concerns in syria after rulers this week of a possible chemical weapons attack in that country. this video was released by syrian government which claims it shows victims of a rebel chemical weapons attack that claim has not been independently verified at this time. but president obama has said that the use of chemical weapons would be "a gam

"morning joe" starts right now. ♪ >> given the ties between our countries, i believe your future is bound to ours. no, no. this is part of the lively debate that we talked about. this is for a. i have to say we actually arranged for that because it made me feel at home. you know, i wouldn't feel comfortable if i didn't have at least one heckler. >> there you go. good morning. it is friday as you take a live look at times square in new york city. welcome to "morning joe." it's march 22nd, by the way, with us on the set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle. hello, mike. senior political editor and white house correspondent for the huffington post, sam stein is here. and senior national correspondent for bloomberg business week josh green. hi, guys. how are you? >> good to be here. >> we start with the ne
in at least one other fatal shooting since his release on parole back in january. and cnn's john spelman is with me from colorado springs. jim, how close are they to nailing down whether tom clements' murder was ordered from inside prison? >> reporter: that could be a while. today they hope to use evidence to officially link evan ebel to the killing of mr. clements. he's the only suspect, to be clear on that. we want to be sure to nail that down. they have been working since the first day of this case in prison, trying to see if there was somebody inside that had a part in some sort of conspiracy perhaps as you mentioned, putting out a hit. now, when we talk to prison officials, they're clear this they don't have any indication of this -- of that at this point. they want to be absolutely sure that public officials in this state are safe. and here's why. we have been here at this memorial for tom clements, memorializing this man, people recognized the real human toll that this crime has taken. we heard from his wife, lisa, publicly for the first time, she spoke at the memorial with her da
goes on behind the scenes in meetings like this. ambassador john bolton is a former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and a fox news contributor. general jack keane is also with us, a four-star retired general and former chief of staff of the u.s. army and a fox news military analyst. aaron david miller is a former advisor to six secretaries of state. he is also the author of, the much too promised land. aaron, let's start with you. this meeting has been written about, much-discussed in the united states. why now? why now for president obama to visit israel? >> oh, i think it is the intersection frankly of politics and policy. obama helped create his own israel problem and not that the prime minister of israel didn't air ba his fair share of the responsibility but the fact these two, probably with the exception of david ben guron and dwight d. eisenhower had most dysfunctional relationship between any american president and israeli prime minister. the president made a political calculation and he was vulnerable and exposed on this he had to take care of old business. too many people thoug
. >> the president of the united states in jerusalem. let's go live to jerusalem right now. cnn's john king has been watching the president. a very busy day for the president in jerusalem, in ramallah, also meeting with palestinian leaders and so much on the agenda not just iran or syria but the peace process as well. >> let's go through the day. from the israeli perspective, tonight israeli officials saying after the president's remarks you just played, they have. even before the new prove okay tiff words from the iranian leadership what israel wanted was clear, muscular language from the president of the united states and israeli officials say they got it. number one the president said he'll not allow an iranian weapon from the u.s. perspective and will act if necessary with military force and he said if israel makes a decision it needs to act unilaterally to defend itself he would understand that as well. the israelis got exactly what they most wanted from the trip. from the president's perspective a long way to go. we'll get to peace in a second. remember for four years republicans back home hav
. back to washington. >> shannon: secretary of state john kerry wrapping up a whirlwind trip to iraq. he flew to baghdad a short time ago, days after the 10th anniversary of the start of the war in iraq. kerry's mission, press iraqi leaders on ending sectarian violence and urging iran to syria. i'm shannon bream. live from the nation's capitol, america's news headquarters. we go to steve centanni more. >> the central issue is whether iraq's president or prime minister, a shiite muslim is helping to support the assad regime in syria, allowing the over flights by iran. now, if so, that raises serious questions about u.s./iraqi relations going forward. secretary kerry met with iraqi prime minister malkey in his unannounced stroz baghdad today. and those iranian flights were at the top of the agend a. the secretary and the prime minister had a private meeting that kerry described as a spirited discussion. when it was over, the secretary told reporters, quote, anything that supportings president assad is problematic. i made it very clear to the prime minister that the overflights from iran ar

speaker john boehner promising a coordinated house and senate investigation into the benghazi attacks. boehner saying the inquiry will focus on three unanswered questions. >> on what happened prior to september 11, what actually happened on september 11 and then why it was described for weeks after something that it wasn't, when the people who were watching this knew it was a terrorist attack. >>anna: u.n. ambassador susan rice blamed the deadly attack on a video. the f.b.i. investigating how a man was able to pose as a pilot and gain ablg ses to the -- access to a u.s. airways cockpit flight in philadelphia. the man had on an air france uniform and i.d. and ended up in the jump seat behind the captain. he was caught when he failed to show real credentials. the airlines says no passengers were ever in danger. those are your headlines this friday morning. >>steve: meanwhile president obama on his way now to bethlehem. he visited israel's memorial to the holocaust victims a short time ago during the third day of his first presidential trip to israel. >>brian: we're live in jerusalem fol
. john is joining us from illinois. republican line. good morning. caller: thank you for taking my call. my comment is about the girl that was killed in that unfortunate incident. from what i understand she was shot to death was sitting in her father's lap. if the politicians want to go after criminals on this type of stuff, this father was a known gang member. does he not have some responsibility, there something in the child's death? i do feel sorry for the family, but it seems to me that they should also be prosecuting him for having a hand in this. host: your part of the country has been hit hard by gun violence. chicago leads the nation, doesn't it? caller: yes, it does. i am a law-abiding gun owners. i have raised my kids properly. but i do not want to see my rights taken away. host: thank you. justin, tennessee, good morning. caller: good morning, sir. how you doing? host: good, thank you. caller: we are talking a lot about guns. with video games we are talking a lot about freedom of speech. these things have been sacrosanct for a long time. what you find when we look at these st
john boehner remained skeptical. >> the budget that senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. >> sreenivasan: the negotiations over these competing party visions for governing will begin in earnest when president obama submits his spending blueprint on april 8. with their work done, house members leave town today for a two week recess. while senators will remain in a marathon session until a vote on their own plan to fund the government. judy woodruff takes it from there. >> woodruff: for what's happening behind-the-scenes, we turn to todd zwillich, washington correspondent for "the takeaway" on public radio international. welcome back to the newshour. >> good to be with you, judy. >> woodruff: first this vote to keep the government funded by the end of the fiscal year, both the house and senate passed this. does this mean democrats and republicans finally see eye to eye on something? >> well, it means that they see eye to eye on not having another showdown right now. both sides h
in the u.n. or the international criminal court. >> we'll see whacomes out. and then john kerry is going to follow up on this. but i suspect that from the way that the wording is coming out there may be a softening of positions on both sides on this in terms of settlement. a restraining settlement activity. >> rose: and palestinian initiatives in the u.n.. >> right. >> rose: okay. the last one is empower secretary of state kerry. >> he hasn't done that yet. he really needs to do it because he's given this speech which has raised expectations sky-high about what the united states is going to do in the peace process. and if he doesn't back kerry up, because kerry is the one that is going to be doing it, kerry won't be able to succeed. >> my guess is knowing secretary kerry and knowing secretary clinton, that secretary kerry will give this because he passionately is interested in this more tension, individually on his own, than secretary clinton. >> he says it that the time, sorry, that the time for middlest envoy is over. >> he is a secretary that is widely prceived as being verylose to th
, carl levin the democratic chair of the senate armed services committee joined john mccain in calling for airstrikes to stick out the air force and skud missiles, and senator, what should the president do in sear yeah, given all of the complications, and, how important was this raproachment, and, when it comes to the syrian civil war. >> as the speaker said, the situation in syria has been a mess for a long time and is likely to be a mess for a long time no matter what we do. there are deep religious and ethnic differences and the end game is a civil war that will involve ethnic cleansing and a whole list of other things, why would we want to get ourselves directly in the middle of that? the president has decided with no good option, to pursue the best of that bad options, use covert means, allies, transport indigenous groups that are more favorable to us, and with respect to what you said about carl and my friend, john mccain, i would make an exception when it comes to weapons of mass destruction. if we have solid intelligence that chemical and biological weapons are about to fall in
investigations, she's joined with john mccain and lindsay graham in raising serious questions about that on the national security front. and, actually, her presence there as a strong conservative voice on benghazi and other security issues has counterbalanced hillary clinton's very strong voice when she was secretary of state. so very interesting. uma: what do you think the men come away with from knowing that they are being watched very carefully by the women in this? it can no longer be simply an old boy network. >> yeah. i think the dynamic there has changed too where the men who have serve inside that body for a long time are now used to it. you know, they tell stories, women senators tell the stories when they fist have gotten there, you know, somebody on the senate floor will say, oh, no, this desk is for a senate. kelly ayotte tells the story she turns around, yes, i am a u.s. senator. [laughter] but the men are changing now, i think for the most part tend to look at their female colleagues as just colleagues in the senate. uma: and we're seeing more women in governorships, a
. obama hoping to accomplish here and why now? why now? >> ambassador john bolton is the former u.n. ambassador to the united nations and a fox news contributor and let's start with that, ambassador. why now? why in year five of the presidency does he now go to israel? >> well, i think because he goes on his terms. there's no domestic political down side now, given that he's faced his last election. so, he can really go and use it for his own purposes, and i think what's interesting here is that there will be a real split on this trip between the public symbolism and the photo opportunities on the one hand, and the substantive conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu will have in private. >> megyn: only 10% of the israeli public, according to the latest polls, has a favorable opinion of our president. just 10% say they have a favorable opinion of him. that's a surprising number and it's not exactly the group before whom he's used to speaking. >> right. well, i'd like to know who those 10% are. i mean, i think it's clear that president obama is the most hostil
and the arizona republican senator john mccain today called for limited air strikes on certain syrian regime targets namely syrian air bases and missile batteries. "the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt is live at the united nations for us tonight. jonathan? this sounds like a significant u.n. investigation. >> well, yes, it certainly has the potential to be significant in that it could be the first independent, unbiased investigation into the several claims we have so far heard that chemical weapons have been used during the syrian civil war. on the other hand, remember, that this particular investigation is limited by the requests of the syrian government to the one alleged attack in outside of the northwestern city of aleppo on tuesday. and this investigation, because it is requested by the syrian government, will, to some extent, at least, be controlled by the syrian government. the secretary general ban ki-moon admitted as much in his statement today, listen. >> i am, of course, aware that there are other allegations of similar cases including the reported use of chemical weapon
, broadcast communist propaganda. i spoke today with senator john mccain. it was 40 years ago last week he returned to vietnam after being p.o.w. for five years. he says regardless of how this happens, cbs owes veterans an apology. eric, assume you agree with senator mccain. >> eric: on this i do agree with senator mccain. can i give this back to you? you have been on this. greg brought the story. this is resonating. on twitter, my twitter feet lit up after the show. i never got more tweets. more response to how proud they were of you. >> bob: dana taught me how to do a hashtag last night and it blew up after that. >> dana: glad we can share that moment. >> bob: in the -- freddie in the past, hashtag meant something else to you. >> bob: it did. why? why do they not say i'm sorry? >> dana: it's partly because of the fox news syndrome that greg talked about. if fox news brinks it up, it's crazy black helicopter conspiracy. they don't realize, somebody should have been helping them get out of their way. greg didn't come up with the story op its own. there was a vietnam vet e-mailed him -- wha
around if only we had a peace process? with whom? >> chris: karl levin joined john mccain in calling for the president to consider a irstrikes to teak out the syrian air force and scud missiles. same question i had for speaker gingrich. what should the president do in syria given all of the complications and how important was this reconciliation that the president helped broker between israel and turkey both of whom have a dog in the hunt when it comes to the syrian civil war? >> the the situation in spearia has been a mess for a long time and likely to be a mess for a long time no matter what we do. there are deep religious and ethnic differences here. the likely end game is a civil that are will involve ethnic cleansing and a whole host of other things. why on earth do we want to get in the middle of that. the president decided with no good option pursue the best of that options. covert means and allies and support indigenous groups that are more favorable to us. with what you said to karl and my friend senator mccain i would make an exception when it comes to weapons of mass destr

happened when you let this many guns walk. now the report also concludes that neither john morton, head of i.c.e., nor homeland security secretary janet napolitano, knew about "fast & furious" until the death of brian terry. the report said this i.c.e. agent did help traffic guns to mexico. he knew it was wrong. violated policy. he reported but no one listened. bill? bill: william, some of these weapons in the end were actually stopped. what are you reporting on that now? >> reporter: there were several incidents and we reported on many of them. once in douglas, arizona, stop ad load. they called it in, they said let the guns go. second incident. i.c.e. at small border crossing in arizona, found guns in the back of a car. he was told to back off. a third time agents stopped a ringleader with a trunk full of guns at check point. there was confrontation with atf and ultimately again, that suspect, who is now under indictment was released this report concludes that atf and the u.s. attorney's office, bill, always stepped in and overrode immigration and customs enforcement. after looking at
to see it in t-38s flying back from el paso. john young and i used to like to fly over it. john loves impact craters. >> using that example, you said that if a similar impact were to occur in water we would see a thousand foot tsunami. what kind of distance would that be expected to travel where it would maintain? >> it depends greatly upon where. the shape of the ocean bottom and the depth of the water and so an. i don't have a good answer for you. the also the characteristics of that tsunami will be a little bit different than earthquake-caused ones which we understand much better because those are done, those are done by a line in a fault this is more of a point, more like dropping a pebble into a bathtub and so, it, the answer is basically it depends. >> you also testified about your estimates of the probability of five megaton incident or 100 megaton incident which i remember right was 30% and 1% respectively? >> in the next century. >> could you provide a little built of the data that go into those probability estimates? >> yeah. in fact there is not a lot of scientific disagree
for the internal bleeding. >> naghmeh, what has the state department, secretary of state, john kerry and the president, have they done what is needed or do you want more from them? >> as we discussed in the hearing, the congressional hearing, it's always been a reactive, any statements, anything done have been more answer to a question and we're expecting more of a proactive effort on their part and the statements coming from them in regard to saeed being released and his violation of religious freedom and the way he's being treated. >> we hear reports that he's being tortured and beaten while in prison. i'm curious in the secretary of state did make another-- during the confirmation hearing did make a statement. what is the difference? iran is not impressed with us in any fashion anyway. having the secretary say something else. >> the more commentary, the media, interviews we've done and leaders spoken out the better treatment he's received. now he was moved to a better ward at one point. now he's saying he's got doctors at least reviewing his problems and told he can go to a hospit
the planet and the way he saw it. our own very beloved and hero with the right stuff, senator john glenn. and also senator jake garn, our wonderful colleague who retired many years ago, but was also on the v.a.-h.u.d. committee. and when i first came to the senate, it was senator garn who really along -- was really one of the members of the other side of the aisle that really helped me learn the senate and really gave me a tremendous introduction to the space program. in fact, we went in a bipartisan way to every space facility on this country -- in this country so we could learn what were the great assets we had, how we needed to fund them, and what was the future of the american space program. so we've had three senators who were certified astronauts and actually went into space. we've had other senators that have been in orbit. some maybe still are out there somewhere.
